In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at dinosaurs, a Fujifilm/Skylum deal, keeping every Raw file, removing objects on iPhone photos and a magazine cover photo contest.

  • In Dinosaurs Get Their Close-Ups in These Stunning Photos, Michael Hardy presents the work of German photographer Christian Voigt. Voigt used "a Swiss-made ALPA medium-format analog camera, bracketing his exposures with different f-stops to give him a full range of lighting options in post-production." The result "fossil assemblages into individuated animals with distinct personalities," Hardy writes.
  • Buy any Fujifilm XF lens and get a free copy of Skylum's Luminar 3 editing software (a $70 value) when you register your purchase online. That's just the first of the collaborations the two companies are planning for 2019.
  • Wasim Ahmad makes The Case for Keeping Every Raw Photo You Shoot (Or Not). We keep 'em because advances in Raw processing breathe new life into old photos, especially Raw files.
  • In Removing Objects From Your iPhone Photos: The Ultimate Guide, Kate Wesson reviews the TouchRetouch editing app.
  • Unique Photo and New Jersey Monthly are sponsoring the magazines's 2019 Cover Search Contest "will award valuable prizes to 14 Cover Search winners. The grand prize winning photo will appear on the cover of the December issue of the magazine." Deadline is Oct. 1.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
